What does it mean to be born again? Nicodemus asked that very question. John 3:5 says "Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God." We have no control over whether or not we will be saved. All we can do is look to the lamb for our salvation. John 3:14 "And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up". No one is asking if you have religion or if you want to go to heaven. A person who is saved will know it. They will know that they are alive. That they were once blind but now can see and there will be visible spiritual growth. Are you spiritually alive? Ye must be born again to know.
